Sorry. Should've been clear. The 3 had a lot of road noise. The 6 compared to the 3 is so much quieter. Although I will say this. Due to the 19 inch wheels the potholes and bumps on the road can be a little jarring. I live in jersey so the roads here can be harsh and it feels like summer is never going to arrive.

I will second that. But on smooth roads the noise is negligible and the ride is great

Yup, same here regarding potholes. I live on Cape Cod, and travel to the Arlington, MA area a lot too. The roads have bad potholes, and if you hit one the wrong way the jolt is pretty jarring. But on a reasonably paved road, the ride is smoooooth. I had the chance to drive a Mazda2 the other day as a loaner while I was getting fog lights installed on my 6, and the road feel is so much nicer on the 6.

I dealt with Felix, the deal was OK not the greatest (Only $500 off MSRP) but they padded it with a nice $400 dealer fee lol . When I bought the CX-5 last year from a PA dealer I bought at MSRP they charged a 1$300 dealer fee, still made out with a little something on the 6. They're good guys over there and the car is already reasonably priced plus the first 2 years of service will be free so that's going to save me a few hundred that I gave away anyways. I'm a happy guy plus the car I traded it was nowhere near worth what they gave me for the trade in haha

Yeah the two years of free service was a nice surprise although I drive so much it will be more like 1 year.
I got $1300 off list and got him to give me a decent price on my trade which they are now selling for 2x what they gave me lol. I had a quote from Wayne Mazda at near invoice so they gave me a decent deal. Didn't want to drive all the way up there anyway.

Glad it worked out for you, will probably see you around. Have not ran into anybody driving one yet. Yeah Wayne is a heck of a drive but it is a huge dealership and very clean. Open Road needs a renovation bad, inside is not the prettiest to look at

Thanks for the info regarding the 3 vs. the 6. It's good to know the 6 is quieter. Just hope it's just as fun to drive since it's heavier.
